Malware/Spyware warnings!

Post by matt_m on July 31st 2010, 7:20 pm

Hello,

A couple of members on my forum have reported to me that when they try to access some topics on my forum, they get a malware/spyware warning from their malware software!!

Help! This has only started happening very recently (since latest updates) and I have changed no settings or anything.

Norton is one software. One of my members just sent me an email saying they tried to access a topic and their norton software popped up with the following message:

Malware detected - do you wish to proceed? - NOT RECOMMENDED

Shocked

Check that topic. There's no actual malware. It's just a coding error.

But it puts members off because they don't know that there isn't actually any malware. Thank you for the link, I will take a look Smile .
